Everyone is lonely

Part of my life thesis is that everyone is lonely. Everyone is looking for better human connection. To be understood and appreciated for who they are

Yet all of the structures around us optimize for exactly the opposite. Shallow interactions in loud bars, the mask of being okay and not needing to share details with friends and the overemphasis on status.

So how might we develop new social norms?Ones that make purposeful vulnerability a regular occurrence. Ones that facilitate meaningful connections and prioritize shared experiences over status

What would a world look like if no one were lonely?
